    Age of this Fleur de lis?

    Found this today, was about a foot down.... not magnetic, probably copper or brass. But how old is it? looks old to me but how old is that?

    I agree it does look old, but maybe check out items related to Boy Scouts of America as well.

    Did some shaped like this. However, their usually totally flat on the back (not indented) and have a pin (theirs no spot for that on the back of this) and also usually have lettering. Could be wrong, but didnt look like the ones i saw.

    Found this few feet away from the fleur de lis. It fits perfectly to one spot on the fleur de lis. Hopfully this helps with identification.

    That may be from a Boy Scout neckerchief slide, the emblem from the front and the shank from the back.

    Maybe a scrap clip or something fashionable but as for a date, good luck.
    Perspective is everything, find a good one.

    Im pretty sure now this actually a concho (like that would go on the side of a saddle or something leather) and i got a broad age. After countless google searches i came across a floral Victorian fleur de lis design that was almost exactly like the one i have. So its victorian era.

    My first thoughts, but the patina on the OP's piece looks much older than something from the 1930's-1950's. I would say that based on it being made out of stamped sheet brass and having a good amount of corrosion, that it is 1850's-1900 or so. Nice cool find!

    As for my previous comment I meant to say 'scarf' not 'scrap'.
    My bad for not catching autocorrect there.
